Make probiotic water kefir drinks
This kit comes with everything you need to make fermented, probiotic water kefir at home.
Kefir contains beneficial bacteria and yeasts. It has been consumed by people in Eastern Europe and parts of Asia for hundreds of years. Research has shown that it helps to maintain the good bacteria in your gut.
What does water kefir taste like?
The taste will vary depending on how much sugar you add, and the length of time that you ferment it. When you second ferment your kefir, in a glass flip top bottle, it will become a fizzy, carbonated drink. You can add delicious flavours like hibiscus, ginger and fruit pieces to create a drink that suits your taste.
Raw, unpasteurised grains
The kit includes a glass jar with 1/4 cup of fresh grains and 1/2 cup of starter liquid. The benefit of a glass jar is that your precious grains won't be stored in plastic packaging. You can also reuse the glass jar.
With a little bit of care and maintenance, your grains will last indefinitely. They will continue to multiply and grow. Before long, you'll have enough grains to share with your friends and family.
